Things You Want To Do Before You Die

Mon Jan 16, 2006 5:17 am

Anything special you want to do before you die? Here's my list:

1.) Watch my sister and brother take note from how I'm going to turn out (e.g. Pilot) sounds big headed but hey!

2.) Stay at an ice palace

3.) See Dubai

4.) See Australia - All of it.

5.) Visit Fiji (Next year if my exam results are good!)

6.) Backpack around China

7.) Become a pilot....for BA (Second most important)

8.) Become a millionaire...even if it is only in Azeri Manats! lol

9.) Own more than one house in more than one country

Ok thats it for now....

I planted a bristlecone pine in my back yard a couple of years ago. Before I die I want to see it grow up, grow old and die.

(For those of you not familiar with the species, they can live over four thousand years.)

I have actually done everything I wanted to do except one thing. I did it, but I forgot to update the dream in light of adult knowledge and current realities. I may take another run at it soon.

- Buy a property/land on every continent (except Antarctica obviously)
- Go trekking to see the Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda (should do this year).
- Visit as many of the world's countries as I can. My goal to start with is 100 countries. an average of 4 new countries a year starting this year should get me there by the time I'm 45, however I will endeavour to do so before I hit 35.
- Learn at least one other language

I have a list as long of my arm of things to do before I cark it, I won't bore you with the details.
Flown to 120 Airports in 44 Countries on 73 Operators. Visited 55 Countries and counting. Wanderlust is like Syphilis, once you have the itch it's too late for treatment.

I've already accomplished five of my top 10..
1. Dated a stripper (this was also a new years resolution)
2. Threesome (FFM-I have had several and they are overrated)
3. Ran with the Bulls in Pamplona
4. Pilot's licenses
5. Own house
my other 5 will only be released upon completion. And they WILL be accomplished in the next 10 years. None of them are sexual except for the midget dressed like a Santa elf fantasy.

I did mine a long time ago (16 years ago) and I used an Aeroconical chute where you had to learn how to land! (They use Ram-Air chutes now where you pull on the toggles 5 feet from the ground and 'step' down) I used a static line and jumped from 2,500 feet. Don't worry about being scared of heights - I am and I was scared of flying until I did it - cured that though - I was so scared of jumping out, that getting up there was no problem!

The views and sensation when I was up there were magnificent - if you can force yourself to do it you'll never regret it - go on - you know you can!

Boy you guys are superficial. I personally think that anyone who's last thoughts are of money will have a rude suprise "on the other side" because you can't take it with you.

1. Watch my daughter grow up and have a child herself. I can't imagine anything more beautiful than holding your baby's baby. My biggest regret in life is that my father died before he could hold my daughter.

2. Have a direct impact on making someone's life better. I'm not just talking about writing a check, but one day I'd like to travel to the third world and directly impact someone who got the short end of the stick in life.

3. Travel and see the world (and not from th 40th floor of an office as most of my travels have currently exposed me to). I'd be particularly interested in Israel, Iraq, Turkey and parts of China.
Hypocrisy. It's the new black for liberals.
